Vegetable oils, which are derived from seeds, are most likely toxic to your metabolism system. They are a key driver of chronic diseases so prevalent in modern economies, diseases including obesity, diabetes, cancer, and heart disease.
These four modern-day diseases were rare in the 19th century. However, their rates have increased dramatically since the 20th century, which is when processed foods with trans fats, refined flour, sugar, and processed seed oils became widespread and very popular. The term “vegetable oil” is a misnomer. They are seed oils that are industrially processed. In addition, they are pro-inflammatory and drive oxidation that promotes chronic diseases.
Many ancient civilizations did not have processed seed oils to disrupt their overall health. Modern cultures like Egypt and Japan have seen declining health rates that correspond to an increase in the consumption of seed oils.
One change that you can make today to reduce your risk of chronic diseases is to eliminate all seed oils from your diet. This would take only a little extra effort to read some labels on the food you purchase.
Many Americans believe that vegetable oils are healthy fats. The term itself sounds healthy by promoting the false belief that they come from vegetables and carry important micronutrients found in vegetables. This is false. These oils are toxic, industrially processed seed oils. These are some of the unhealthiest food items you can consume.
